How to paint Emelda Braskov
Undercoat your model with Black undercoat spray.
Paint the ribbon, sword handle and dagger handle with Mephiston Red.
Paint the Eagle Feathers and leg pouch completely with Dryad Bark.
Edge highlight the feathers and leg pouch with Baneblade Brown.
Paint the belt buckle, sword/dagger hilts and pommels and shoulder ornaments gold with Liberator Gold.
Wash the gold parts with Aggaros Dunes Contrast paints.
Edge highlight the gold, armour and blade with Runefang Steel.
Paint her loincloth, head, hair, beak, eagle eye and around the eagle eye with watered down Corax White. Do this carefully, try not to get white anywhere else.
Wash the loincloth with Apothecary White.
Paint the head, hair, beak, eagle eye and around the eagle eye with Wraithbone.
Edge highlight the hair with Wraithbone.
Highlight the loincloth with White Scar. Dot the eyes leaving a black pupil in the middle. Dot the eagle eye.
Using 2/0 or smaller brush define the outline of the face, ear and roots of the hair with some very thin lines of Fyreslayer Flesh.
To paint the base I painted the rubble Sons of Horus Green, washed with Agrax Earthshade, drybrushed Dawnstone and edge highlighted Celestra Grey. The sand is painted with Dryad Bark, drybrushed with Steel Legion and then final drybrushed with Karak Stone.
